One of the primary functions of school is to provide the foundation for the formation and development of proper attitudes. One basic attitude is seriousness of purpose toward education. The conduct and dress of students often reflect their attitude toward school and schoolwork. Conduct and dress, which is acceptable and proper for play, recreation and home, may not be acceptable for the school environment.
The Superintendent of Schools and the Waterbury Board of Education are in full support of the uniform policy. Each parent is responsible for his/her child’s dress. The students’ attire must be in accordance with the dress code. The cleanliness, health and safety of each child must be the concern of every parent.
